Hampson Woods


In 2010, after working as a carpen­ter, writer, and photog­ra­pher around the world, Jonty Hampson returned to his native UK and set up a wood work­shop in Hackney, with a sign over his stall that read ALL MY OWN WORK. His first prod­ucts were serving boards fash­ioned from timber from his family’s wood­land and a fallen London Plane in Russell Square. Six years later, he craved an even closer connec­tion to the source, and set up a studio in an old stone barn in Cumbria.

Since then, Hampson Woods has devel­oped ranges of hand­made bespoke and commer­cial designs sourced from small rural merchants and local coun­try­sides. Each piece fore­grounds the natural patina, knots, cracks, and curves which deter­mine each tree’s indi­vid­ual char­ac­ter. Varying grits of sand­pa­per smooth the surfaces without dulling them; Hampson Woods’ signa­ture wood balm, a blend of natural oils and waxes, fosters an inner glow and ensures dura­bil­ity for decades to come.
